About Community Crops

We provide education, advocacy and experiences to grow local food.


Community Crops was started with one community garden in 2003, and has grown over the years to become a successful organization. Crops now has 11 community garden sites, a training farm, a production greenhouse, garden and cooking education for all ages, a mobile farmers market and new storefront, and more.

In 2023, Community Crops became a program of Family Service Lincoln. All Community Crops staff & programming remains the same, but from our new home at Family Service Lincoln. Our new administrative office address is located at 501 S 7th St, Lincoln, NE 68508.

Community Crops currently has four full-time staff positions and numerous volunteers who help with our projects, in addition to the many farmers and gardeners who participate in the program.

“If we can continue to inspire people to grow food in their community,
we really have an opportunity to change the culture in the United States and change behavior.”
